However, now that I have somewhat settled into a new routine, I've found that one thing remains clear: taking care of myself is just as important as taking care of my family in these unprecedented times. I like to use the oxygen mask example; remember all those in-flight instructional videos? (I know... seems like eons ago that we were traveling via plane...)

Why Scrumptious Wicks Candles Make the Best Custom Favors...

Over the past few years, I've had the honor to create some AMAZING favors for my customers and their special events.

Behind the Fragrances: Mango Lassi and Indian Monsoon, Scented Soy Candles Inspired by South Asia

  A few months back, I was trying to figure out how to capture the essence of summer in a candle. And what I often do is draw inspiration from my own childhood memories.  I was born and raised in the US, but as a kid, my mom would make it a point to take me to Mumbai, India every 2 years.
